Immersion suits have to be serviced yearly to be up to date. If you are a deckhand on someone's boat either bring your personal immersion suit or ask to inspect the suit that you will be provided with. Your immersion suit could be the piece of equipment that saves your life, so don't leave the inspection up to anyone else. If you need help servicing minor repairs on your immersion suit, you can check with your local USCG dockside examiner, or send your suit to the manufacturer.
